As Perry Vaile, the photographer behind this inspiration shoot said, “No matter how it’s celebrated, Christmastime is a reminder to slow down, be grateful, and cling tightly to the ones you love most in this special season.” And quite frankly, we couldn’t agree more. Along with the design + stylings of Emily Claire Events, she captured the sentiment of a Christmas getaway, and there’s more to see right here. From all of us at Style Me Pretty, wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday!
From Perry Vaile… While some celebrate with large gatherings or boisterous parties, there’s another equally special alternative – the Christmas Getaway. Whether it’s a quiet respite from a busy year, or a way to reconnect with someone special, taking the holidays as a private experience can turn a typical holiday into one for the record books.
Pack light, bring your winter clothes, and plan for a weekend snuggled up watching Christmas movies in bed with hot cocoa, going on the hunt for the perfect tree, and then warming up with a fresh pot pie straight out of the oven.
Make an evening out of decorating the tree, and stay up late as the candles melt down, reminiscing about the beauty and challenges that 2016 brought. No matter how it’s celebrated, Christmastime is a reminder to slow down, be grateful, and cling tightly to the ones you love most in this special season.
